- Modern Australian Agriculture
Modern agriculture is an evolving approach to agricultural innovations and farming practices that helps farmers increase efficiency and reduce the amount of natural resources necessary to meet the world’s food, fuel, and fiber needs. Modern agriculture is driven by continuous improvements in digital tools and data, as well as collaborations among farmers and researchers across the public and private sectors.
Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation in agriculture has the potential to bring humanity’s needs in balance with the resources of our planet.
Monsanto began its operations in Australia in 1928. Today our products have become indispensable to Australian and New Zealand agriculture.
We support and partner with the Australian cotton industry, through research, breeding and production of cotton seed and biotechnology products; the grains industry, with the introduction of our genetically modified canola technology; and the Australian and New Zealand horticultural industry through Seminis and De Ruiter vegetable seed product ranges.
